This trek takes you along the famous Singalila Ridge. This prominent spur of high ground lies at the southern end of a long crest, which runs down from Kangchenjunga itself, and forms the border between Sikkim and Nepal. The trek along this ridge going through small settlements is renowned as being one of the most scenically rewarding in the entire Himalaya. There are views of Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Everest, Lhotse and a host of other peaks in the eastern Himalaya all seen at one stretch - quite a sight from 11,800ft, the maximum altitude you get to on this trek.This trek prepares you well for the next leg of the tour in Bhutan which is strenuous.

We then fly to the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan - a peaceful, organized and scenic country with pristine beauty and strong traditional values, a country which has deliberately kept tourists at bay so that it remains unspoiled. We make the short but excellent trek to Chomolhari base camp following a circular route taking you to the Brontela pass and along the Tsophu lakes.
